Van Wert County Auditor Indicted Along With Two Deputies
Tuesday, November 12, 2019

It was announced on Monday that Van Wert County’s auditor and two deputies within his office have been criminally indicted after authorities said they broke into the county treasurer’s office, hacked into a computer and tampered with records.

Philip Baxter is charged with felony breaking and entering and unauthorized use of property, along with misdemeanor intimidation.

Meanwhile Julienne Rolsten, a deputy county auditor, is charged with felony breaking and entering, tampering with records, and unauthorized use of property, computer, cable, or telecommunications property. The second deputy, Juliann Zinn, is charged with one count of felony breaking and entering.

A Van Wert County Grand Jury handed down the indictments last week. Baxter, Rolsten and Zinn have not yet been arrested.
